Nitish Rana is playing for Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2020. His performance this season has been quite dramatic. In one match, they play in a stormy style, in the next, they are unable to stop at the crease. It is surprising to see the scores of the last five matches in Rana’s IPL 2020. In this, his score is something like – 0,81,0,87 and 0.
That means either he will play a big inning or he will not even open an account. It is also interesting that in all the three matches in which he is out without scoring runs, the first ball is out. That means Golden Duck. Let us tell you that getting out on zero on the very first ball in cricket is the Golden Duck.
